Toy Designer makes appearance at TED, in Vancouver

(light reading / fun stuff / just advocating)

OK, so maybe I geek-out a little bit over Michael Sng and his project “Codename Colossus”. What can I say, He inspires me. In just 2yrs, he has taught himself ; 3d-design , 3d-printing , electronics , social media marketing , travels the world showcasing his very expensive custom built toy , and just renovating a new studio.
Production development, based on a centralized theme, just seems like a unique way to stand-out in the market, and maintain focus around the characters that will evolve as part of the story.
Aside from the abundant talent, Michael also has a wonderfully humble, self-deprecating and humorous personality. I hope his adventure continues to be a success, and evokes the imagination of many designers, tinkerers and artist that will follow.


Thanks for sharing @Gene_Crady I am going to have a look at this for sure!

Follow up,
WOW, that is just stunning work. Post processing and all the effort that has gone into Colossus is just outstanding

I got Michael’s work introduced to me also by @Gene_Crady and I have since tried to reach out to him! It’s so well made and intricate!

I think he’s quite busy at the moment prepping for his TED Talks, since I’ve yet to hear a reply. Saw his video on Youtube about his announcement re: doing a TED Talk and his humbleness really shines through. Great guy!

TEDtalk was on the 16th… Last link is the blog post he sent out last night, about his adventure. Add “great writer” to the list of talents also.
I guess he has made the decision to keep his IP under tight control. And after this weeks Ebay story, that would be totally understandable.
